About the Artist
Teresa M. Sims is an Atlanta based photographer born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Photojournalism, from the University of Southern Mississippi, and shortly after moved to Atlanta, GA where she now practices fine art and documentary photography.
Lisa Hostetler, curator of photographs at the Milwaukee Art Museum, juried Sims’ work into APG’s Southern Photographers 2009 exhibition stating that her water tower series had a “collective sense of community that distinguishes one town from its neighbors”. Her photographs have also been juried into local shows by such distinguished jurors as Jane Jackson, Howard Greenberg, Birney Imes and Sylvia Plachy. Juror Anne Telford founding managing editor of Communication Arts awarded her an honorable mention in “Beauty: Camera Eye of the Beholder” an International Juried Online Photographic Exhibition presented by Women In Photography International (WIPI) in 2005.
Ms. Sims has been very active in the Atlanta photographic community and served on the boards of organizations including the Atlanta Photography Group, Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Women in Focus.
Currently, her work can be found in various collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, March of Dimes (Atlanta), City Hall of Decatur, Miller Gallman Developers, and Greenberg Traurig Associates.
